After looking at the thread about the pole barn house (one of which we are currently living in) I figured that this was the place to post this question. Our back porch overhang roof looks very much like LaMoncha's without the upright supports. The previous owners were Amish and before deciding to sell had started to turn the east end of the porch (poured slab concrete with hydrant and drain present) into a summer kitchen of sort where his wife could do laundry and cook and be out of the weather. The enclosure is unfinished, with the exterior walls the same metal barn siding as the house. We have considered finishing the enclosure into a screen porch but after looking at it from all angles have decided that it is probably cheaper to just take the enclosure out and have an open porch with a fantastic view of the woods. The enclosure does not add anything positive to the back of the house. So that is the spring project is to tear down the two walls and remove the one really nice window (trust me, it looks strange to have a window on a three walled open porch) and recycle the 2X4s and siding into other ongoing projects. My question is HOW do you remove nails from barn siding (regular washered type barn siding nails) with out tearing the begeebers out of the metal? I'm sure some body here has tackled the problem and can provide the answer. Is there a special tool that can be used? Do you use a regular pry bar, hammer or what? Thanks in advance.
